    My Trip Report

    This is how I'm starting my trip:
    image.jpeg

    In case there's a replay of Contagion in Vegas, just know I'm patient 0.

    Head colds will not dissuade me from my first Vegas trip in 7 months. That's saying a lot because 3 months apart was the max for the last 14 years. With family and babysitting all lined up away we go.

    This is 3 nights with the wife at Encore. Milo's (as always), Scarpetta (4th time), L'atillier (2nd time), Mandarin Sky Bar (3rd time) MJOne (1st) are all in the plans.

    Instead of a full play-by-play, I'll probably post drinks, wins, and generally funny $hit I see off my Snap.
    I'm going to probably stick with VP/slots this trip vs tables.

    Bring on the fun!! :wink2:

    Thanks for the well wishes.

    I'm leaving dinner tomorrow up to the board.

    Wife and I will hopefully arrive about 8pm tomorrow. Should be no problem with Wednesday reservation after the convention rush. We'd probably like to eat dinner somewhere on Wynncore. Sinatra was good. Hissom's sucked. Steak (SW) is probably too heavy for the 1st night.

    GO! Otherwise, we starve :goofy:

    I remember I went to Vegas with a really bad cold last year- was so worried about how it would impact the trip. Somehow, when I got there, it just wants an issue at all. Maybe it's the dry air and excitement. In any case, I'm hoping that issues resolve the moment you land!

    Have fun and good luck!

    I can't do it, I just had a trip that I had to cancel for various reasons but becoming sick 3 days prior really put the icing on the cake for me.

    If it hadn't been so unbearably long (7 months) since my last visit I may have cancelled as well. I'm sure the adrenalin will kick in at some point. I may have to tell the barkeeps to leave the whole orange in the Old Fashioneds' but a good time will be had!

    I posted on another board about this. People always say the "got sick while in Vegas", and I say, "Look at how many people on your flight out there are hacking/sneezing/wiping...."

    You get sick from all these people flying with you, who should be home in bed!

    But, hey! You're on vacation.

    It's amazing what a night of sleep will do for the sinuses.

    Anyways, picked up my bankroll for this trip

    Yup Yup. Actually San Juan Capistrano but yup yup. I like the swallows, and I don't mean the Paytriple kind.
